11508 Stolte           Discovered 1990 Oct. 12 by L. D. Schmadel and F. Borngen at Tautenburg.
Dieter Stolte (b. 1934) served for 20 years as director general of ZDF, the public German TV net and one of the largest European TV stations. A professor of media research, Stolte initiated international TV channels (ARTE, 3SAT) in a European cooperation. The name was suggested by the first discoverer.
